Have Ball Will Travalena: Night Of The Dribbler Star Dies

feature_trav

Noted comedy entertainer Fred Travalena (IMDB Profile) has passed away at age 66. The amiable funnyman played three different roles in the unreleased slasher spoof NIGHT OF THE DRIBBLER (1995) and has a veritable laundry list of stand-up, impersonator and acts gigs. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

As recently as March, Travalena recorded audio commentary for Code Red’s forthcoming DRIBBLER disc (pictured below with Scott Spiegel) and appeared in good spirits. Code Red were set to release the story of a basketball team besieged by a Spalding-headed killer in July, however it was recently removed from schedule. Sadly, Travalena never saw a release for the movie.

It’s unknown if his passing will result in a rush to release, or further delay as appropriate tribute material is added. As soon as we know, you’ll know.

RIP Fred Travalena.

  1. Post respectfully in this one or be banned, folks. Don’t stoop to using someone’s passing as an excuse to slag a company.

  2. Well said! Damn shame about Fred, I hope the film is eventually released to honour his memory.

    P.S. I don’t know who designed that banner at the top but it’s pretty cool!

  3. Awww, what a nice surprise to see a little mention of Fred here. I watch him on Match Game reruns all the time. I was sad to see he passed away.

    I hope this movie does get released. The commentary track with Fred would be worth the price of the DVD alone.

    RIP Fred.

  4. So sad about Fred, my best wishes to his family/

    Dribbler now has new street date of 8th September – reported on codered website.

  5. It is sad that he never saw the release of his movie but at least he did know that it was going to finally be released and got to do his commentary. I will be surely checking this one out in October! Rest In Peace Fred and may God bless your soul.

  6. man, guess no one can really escape it. Rest in Peace Fred. God bless
